WE ARE IN LOVE WITH LOS ANGELES!
Hi loves. Finally, we are here!
After many months of preparation, we have settled in to our cozy nest in Studio City, CA. It's just north of Hollywood and right next to Universal Studios!! Ever since Roberto and I got together (2 years ago as of 03/27(: ), we have dreamed about moving to Los Angeles to pursue our dreams. It warms our hearts knowing all the support we had along the way. We couldn't have done it without each and every one of you, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Enough with the sappy stuff (:
So far, Los Angeles weather has been absolutely breathtaking. Every day has been about 80 degrees and sunny. You should see the greenery after all the rains these past few months, its worth a trip out here! We made it our mission to find a gorgeous beach that would allow our adorable Malti-poo, Gracie, to enjoy while we took photos. HANDS DOWN, the best beach in Los Angeles is Leo Carrillo Beach in Malibu. It's gorgeous, clean, not too many people, AND allows dogs! So lately, that has been our go-to destination. As some of you know, Roberto and I are very active people, we love to go out and enjoy nature while exercising Gracie. While searching for hikes in Studio City, we discovered Wilacre Park. It's only 10 minutes away from the house and offers an amazing, scenic hike up the Hollywood Hills and into Runyon Canyon. It's an easy trail but uphill the entire way.
Also, best restaurants in Los Angeles...so far we are in love with THE RUSTIC SPOON in North Hollywood. It's an Asian mix restaurant and makes the BEST Chicken Pho. For anyone who's never had Pho, I highly suggest it. It's easy, affordable, and healthy but makes me feel like I'm cheating because I get so full eating it! Yesterday we were in Malibu and stopped by KRISTY'S VILLAGE CAFE and couldn't get enough! We had Margarita and Spicy Chicken Sausage Flatbreads and ended it with these remarkable gifts from GOD, and for the life of me, I can't remember what they're called but imagine a chocolate egg cracked in half and filled with chocolate, pistachio, and cherry ice cream. HEAVEN ON EARTH.
Anyway, thank you for listening to all my rambling! Hopefully some of this helps if you ever decide to make a trip out here and feel free to contact us if you have any questions about where to go or what to see. We would love to give you guidance as we learn to enjoy and appreciate all this city has to offer(:
Enjoy the week ahead. We love you guys so much.
